In 2019 Chatsworth, in partnership with Sotheby’s to celebrate their 275th anniversary, presented an immersive exhibition based in Sotheby’s New York gallery - Treasures from Chatsworth. This helped to take a step towards realising one of our main charitable objectives - to share the Devonshire Collections with the world. It was also the first time we were able to talk to an American audience about the work of the Chatsworth House Trust and our vital conservation work.
To harness the significant interest in Chatsworth, a US non-profit corporation, Chatsworth in America, Inc. was established by and for Americans, giving us the ability to continue engaging new audiences with the work of the Trust.
The mission of Chatsworth in America is to educate the public about history through conservation, restoration and management of historic buildings, grounds and art collections. The board has chosen to initially support programs for the Chatsworth House Trust which share the same mission.
Chatsworth in America, Inc is a US 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation and is governed by an independent board of directors.
